Top 10 Things to See at Seaworld San Diego for Families


We recently went to Seaworld San Diego after a half day of school and had the best time! We have our top 10 things to see at Seaworld for families! I love that San Diego has so many fun theme parks and I especially love being able to spend a few hours at one. We were able to see a lot of animals, enjoy a lot of rides and wander around the park with friends. Seaworld is located in Mission Bay and you can even see the bay from a few spots in the park. There is a lot to see and do at Seaworld, including rides, activities, tours, animal interactions, dining and camps. This post is focused on the animals to see and the rides for families.
